The leafcutter ants (better known as Zompopas) are a fascinating species, organized and able to carry more than 20 times their body weight. Find out more about them on this interesting tour.


  • Discover the Zompopas leafcutter ants
  • See how they create a unique fungus
  • Spot the ant queen and discover interesting facts about this unique species


You will be able to appreciate close-up how the ants cut the leaves with their jaws and move around their colony. During the tour, there is also the opportunity to see how they grow fungus and you'll catch a glimpse of the queen. Under normal circumstances it is almost impossible to see their way of living so clearly but the tour supplier's unique system makes it possible to do so. During 1-hour, you'll learn about the society and model of the ants, their methods of transporting the leaves, the importance of the queen and much more.
